IBC Innovation Awards  |  Celebrating collaboration in technology and creativity

Michael CrimpIBC’s awards for technological and creative innovation are now well established as the most coveted in the industry. This is because of their unique approach: a winning project will be one where the commissioning company works closely with technology partners to deliver a clever, appropriate and innovative solution to a real business, technical or creative issue. They might add to creativity, enable the enterprise to work more effectively, or use new ways to reach and engage with audiences.

IBC is the one global forum where every aspect of the industry comes together to share knowledge, solve challenges and develop future strategies. The IBC Innovation Awards celebrate that spirit of co-operation and collaboration.
